Solid delivery, beautiful steel from Jerry. Anyone know if they opened or played during the Dead's setbreak? I agree w/ skwimite - this is a great warm-up / companion piece to the Dead's set. Dirty Business, by '71, was beginning to sound like Dark Star as they revved it up.

BTW, NoyoWharfRat - you made me laugh today. I'm going to have to start using that reference in everyday situations.

Subject: Lap Steel?
Obviously, you're not a golfer. That's a "pedal steel" Mr. Garcia was playing.

Great show, typical 70's aud..

I have to say Jerry Garcia is the best Lap steel player ever just listen to this show and you will understand. He might not be ripping 15 solo's but his fills in between every thing are amazing.

Great companion piece to go with the Dead show. I used to love when they opened for the Dead, and really got everybody warmed up and ready for orbit. Thanks to those responsible. Blast off!

Hey Now, This is a fine show. First saw NRPS opening for the Dead in 1971 always felt john Dawson & Dave Nelson were just as important musicians as Jerry,Bobby,&Phil. Great to hear just departed Spencer Dryden on the drums. This show had me toe-tapping,dancing,and by the time you get to The Weight,Jerry's pedal steel brought tears to my eyes. Ahh,those were the days.

Subject: Uncle Jerry
This is an excellent show and reminds me of those times I would see them with Uncle Jerry on pedal steel. He was the best at expressing that high and lonesome sound that would make your eyes water when you saw him play. Great sound quality. Get it!
